Need better fonts in slackware 10.1


Hi,

Is it just me or are the fonts kinda ugly in slackware? I copied my windows fonts over using font installer but even when I use them they don't appear the same as they do in windows (they look cleaner in windows). Is there a setting somewhere that I can modify that will improve the look of the fonts cuz they look nasty in my opinion?

thanks,

thorney

Hey,


Enabling antialiasing seemed to make a bit of a difference.

thanks
